Why do so many people love baked oatmeal? The texture. The texture is very different from a bowl of normal oatmeal.
Baked oatmeal is kind of a cross between a bowl of oatmeal and a cake or bar. It not mushy. It can be scooped out or cut into squares.
It also reheats well. I almost always make several pans of baked oatmeal and my family reheats it for lunch during the week.
Baked oatmeal also freezes well, so make extra for the freezer.
Baked oatmeal can also be made gluten free by using gluten free oats.
I like to use quick oats for baked oatmeal, but you can also use regular oats. The texture will just be slightly different.
